In the modern era, it seems as though there is a huge focus on personalisation and being unique. In many ways, this is a positive thing and it is refreshing and positive to see people defining themselves in their own fashion. It can be very easy to fall into the herd and run with the pack so anything which allows people to personalise their style and to create an identity that they really believe in has to be seen as a good thing. However, it is also important for people to be able to personalise themselves and their belongings at their own pace. There are some folk that like to truly stand-alone from the crowd and there are some that like the comfort of sharing opinions, thoughts and ideals with others. This isn’t to say that people within this group won’t benefit from little personal touches in their outlook.
This is where finding products that can add a personal touch to your life is so important. People who want to be completely independent will be able to find exactly what they are looking for. People who are happy to be part of the gang but like to have small things that stand them out from the crowd will also be able to benefit. There is also the fact that if you are looking for a gift to give someone, the personal touch will always be very much appreciated. Taking the time and effort to find or create a personal gift, as opposed to giving a generic off the shelf present, will be of tremendous benefit to the recipient and in return, to the person who gave the gift. Personalisation takes thought and consideration, which is often much more important than money.
The smartphone is an integral part of life
Of all the gifts or products that can be personalised, it is easy to see why personal phone covers are in high demand. In the modern era, phones are a natural part of our everyday lives and it seems as though some people are attached to their phone every hour of the day. If it wasn’t for the necessity of sleep, some people would never be off of their phones so you can see why having a personalised phone case is crucial.
There are many different options to choose from. A personalised photo can be used to create a cover with an image that spans the entire case or it can be used to cover a part of the phone’s case. There is also an opportunity to add a message to the phone case, which again provides greater flexibility and benefit from this style of product. If you are giving a gift to someone, it is possible to create a very special and personal message to someone or you can add a personal joke. There is also the opportunity to make a message or statement for yourself with your personalised smartphone cover, which is exactly what plenty of people are looking for today.
Can you be unique with a branded smartphone?
With so many people using the latest brand name smartphone, it can be difficult to do so in a truly unique way. If you are using the latest Apple phone, the newest Samsung model or even a popular Android enabled phone, you will find that there are many more people around the world who have the exact same model. On a small scale, this may mean you have issues telling your phone apart from your friends. On a larger scale, it may be more difficult to convince yourself and other people that you are a truly unique character when you have the same phone as millions of other people around the world but there is a chance to at least make your phone look unique and individual.
Creating the right image and personality for yourself is crucial and there are many ways to do this. Having the right look and identity provides people with confidence and enables them to feel better about themselves and how they engage and interact with other people. This is definitely a positive thing in life and if using a personalised phone cover can help people to feel moer confident and happy, it is something that more people should look into.

There's been many a time when I've come from work or yoga and felt like a soft drink to cool down, only to open the fridge and find I hadn't bought any this week. Soda Makers are still around, and better than ever, and they'll make sure you never have to worry about that again.
On top of that, some soda maker, er..., makers, like SodaStream, create machines by which you can adjust how much syrup to use, or how fizzy you want your drinks to be, as well as offering a huge amount of flavours. This will ensure that whatever you're in the mood for, you don't have to go out and buy a big, fat bottle of it.
Cleaning a strainer with oil clinging to it every time you make pasta can be a huge hassle. I mean, seriously, why won't hot water, soap, and some intense scrubbing still do nothing? Anyway, my cleaning dilemmas aside, these pasta pots provide the solution.
With a lock-on lid that is perforated with teeny little holes, you can strain your pasta, or anything you're boiling, without even having to remove it from the pot. That means you can then also just chuck in sauce or cheese right into the pot, without having to get a separate bowl. So much cleaning that you just won't have to do!
Here's another handy, home-made solution to your sweet cravings! Whether you're after ice-cream or soft-serve there's a solution out there for you. Much like Soda Makers, there's a heap of flavours available, and should you choose to mix the two, you can even get creative with some great ice-cream floats!
It's also a simple and fun way to have fun with your kids.
I Could Eat A Horse Spaghetti Measure
This is probably the simplest, yet cleverest, gadget on the list. The “I Could Eat a Horse” spaghetti measure solves that endless mystery of how many people your handful of spaghetti will feed. The portions outlined on the measure are what would feed a child, a woman, a man, and, of course, the proverbial horse. It's seriously worth having just for the quirky factor, but it's also super handy.

By the time the iMac G3 came out, home computers were nothing new, but they were took a lot of room and were hardly something you'd have out in the living room. The iMac changed that. Its slick, colourful design where buyers could choose their colour of preference meant it was not only pretty, but it felt personal. Not only that, but it managed to put all of the technology from bulky computer cases into the computer's monitor, which meant no tangle of wires and no need for additional machinery. The thing looked so good it was featured in a variety of movies and tv shows as unpaid product placement.
Compact and pretty. Sound like something you may have in your pocket today?
Playing video games on the go? Yes please!
It was chunky, it was grey, and it certainly wasn't all that portable, but boy did the Game Boy carve itself a huge niche. The appeal of being able to play Mario and Zelda on the go was just too much. The Game Boy showed there was an audience out there craving portability, and though the product itself made it look like they had a huge tumour on their thigh, it was worth it because the software was just so good.
Everything the Game Boy was can really be encapsulated in four words: TETRIS ON THE GO!
The nineties saw the rise of the mobile phone, and the Motorola StarTAC epitomised everything about those phones at the time. Its sleek black design, the way you flipped it open to take calls, its pocket-size... without the StarTAC, mobile phones as we know them may not have been what they are now.
Casio Digital Diary
Keeping with the portability theme, how's about this little beauty? The Casio Digital Diary was a cheap gadget that could store phone contacts and notes. Before long, every kid on the playground was carrying one of these around. I'm not sure how much use they actually ended up getting, but it prepared an entire generation for the use of portable technology as a means of organising their lives.
Apple PowerBook G3
This was the all-in-one device of the 90's. The PowerBook was a laptop that featured a sleek, black design, a fourteen inch screen, powerful specs, and CD, DVD, Floppy, and Zip drives. It may be bulky by today's standards, but it proved you could throw everything and the kitchen sink into a computer and still make it portable.
After a trip down Portability Avenue, we find ourselves back in the living room with the PlayStation. Not only did Sony's original console provide players the ability to navigate through three-dimensional games, it also introduced the world to Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo, and many other franchises that are still bringing in the bucks today. It also helped create a generation of gamers who would continue to play video games well into their thirties.

You probably know that your iPad goes way beyond just a computing and entertainment device. You also likely know that your iPad helps you become more productive. But, do you know that your iPad can connect to real world things and end up enhancing their potential and your pleasure? No? Okay, here’s how:
You Can Connect Your iPad To Your HDTV
Do you want your iPad to display your HDTV’s programs? Well, all you have to do is buy Apple’s Digital AV Adapter, which allows you to plug your tablet into your TV (in the HDMI port). But then this is a “wired” option. If you want to go wireless, you should buy AppleTV and use the AirPlay feature to beam its display on your iPad.
You Can Stream Music and Movies On Your Tablet
Use iTunes’ HomeSharing feature to play music and movies that are stored on your PC or laptop on your iPad. HomeShare does not require you to load the data on your iPad, thereby helping you save on drive space. Once you become an advanced user, you can even stream data from PC to iPad to TV.
You Can Send Faxes From Your iPad
Yeah, you can! And you don’t have to plug your iPad to a fax device. All you have to do is download an email to fax app and bingo, you can send and receive faxes (national and international) while on the go. Of course, such apps charge a nominal monthly fee – so download one only if you are a mobile faxer.
You Can Use Your iPad as a Second Computer Monitor
To do this, download the iDisplay app. iDisplay costs $5 and is intended for folks who require two monitors to check on critical data such as stock market charts, research data laid out in many columns, etc. I have seen gamers buy this app to watch the beauty of blood and gore on two screens – I find this unnecessary. Anyway, use your judgment – it’s your money!
You Can Strum A Guitar On Your Tablet
To do this, you have to work with iRig, an innovative app that allows you to plug your guitar into your iPad and play it on the screen. The app includes a pre-amp, which improves the tone and free software (AmpliTube) that simulates an amp and comes equipped with two sound effects – Noise Filter and Delay. You also get the Distortion effect when you register the app. Other effects can be purchased for up to $4.99 each.
You Can Print Documents From Your iPad
You have to download AirPrint, a nifty app that allows you to print documents on compatible printers. And, don’t worry, the app supports many printers and chances are that it will work for you. If your printer isn’t AirPrint-compatible, don’t worry (again) – chances are that it is wireless and that means you may be able to print from your beloved tablet.
Aside from these I also use FiOS Mobile, which allows me to control cable TV from my iPad. No more button-filled remotes for me!
This is how I connect my iPad with offline real-world things and increase my fun and knowledge.
What’s your iPad story?

After Google Glasses were revealed there was a lot of speculation as to just what the technology giant was going to do next. The answer, many were shocked to find, is that the Internet and technology giant is creating contact lenses. They won't be used to browse the Internet though; the lenses, if all goes according to plan, will be used to revolutionize the way diabetics live their lives.
Sugar-Sensing Contact Lenses
People who live with diabetes have difficulty maintaining a healthy blood sugar level. This leads to all kinds of medications, lifestyle changes, and other preventative measures being taken to help control the condition. One of the most common sights though is a diabetic person jabbing his or her fingertips, swabbing a bit of blood onto a test strip, and then inserting the strip into an electronic reader to check the glucose levels in the blood.
Google might be eliminating the need for that kind of testing
The contact lenses currently being tested have tiny, miniature LED lights that look like specks of glitter when worn. Sandwiched between layers of the lens, the technology measures glucose levels in the wearer's tears. When the levels get too high, or too low, the LED lights flash to warn the wearer of the condition. There's no pricking necessary, no need to carry test strips, and less of a package to carry around when leaving the house.
The question people might ask, and legitimately so, is at this point is what's next? If contact lenses can be fitted with circuitry and worn with little to no effort, then what else is possible? Will futuristic technology be installed directly into affected tissue to cure diseases from the common cold to cancer? Will the cell phones and iPods of the future be able to catch ambient brain waves to charge themselves? Or, for that matter, will people be able to download information straight into their brains?
We're not there yet, but the keyword in that sentence is yet. Things once thought completely impossible, such as cybernetic prosthetics capable of delivering sensation to the brain, have become common. Still cutting edge, but fairly common all the same. When it comes to Google's revolutionary contact lenses, the question is really what other conditions can be monitored and treated using this tiny technology? The miniaturization of medical monitors might result in a complete change in how conditions are diagnosed and treated. They could also lead to test results being completed in minutes, rather than in hours or days as has been the case previously. Only time will tell for certain.
